The 1927-28 season was Blackpool F.C.'s 27th season (24th consecutive) in the Football League. They competed in the 22-team Division Two, then the second tier of English football, finishing nineteenth.

Sydney Beaumont became the club's new manager prior to the start of the season, succeeding Major Frank Buckley.

Jimmy Hampson was the club's top scorer, with 31 goals, including four goals against Nottingham Forest at Bloomfield Road on 24 March 1928, Blackpool winning 5-3. He also scored two hat-tricks: one at Wolves on 26 November 1927, and one at home to Fulham on 5 May 1928, the final day of the season. Two other players also scored hat-tricks during the season: Tommy Browell, in a 6-2 victory over Bristol City at Bloomfield Road, and Bert Fishwick, in a 3-1 victory at home to Reading.

A milestone occurred on Christmas Eve, when Blackpool played their 1,000th Football League game, at Fulham.[2]
